December Forest Festivities

Join us in the exciting lead up to Christmas for a festive weekend

Visit Santa's Grotto

Join us in the exciting lead up to Christmas on one of our festive weekends on Saturday 5, 12 & 19 December.

Each Saturday and in the week leading up to Christmas the children can visit Santa in his grotto as he prepares for the big day. Will you be on the good list this year?

After a sell-out performance last year, our special Christmas panto will play each Saturday in December in the lead up to Christmas and on Wednesday 23 December. Beauty and the Beast will delight the whole family while parents enjoy a warming glass of mulled wine and children see their favourite characters come to life.

Biscuits & baskets takes on a festive twist with gingerbread decorating and craft activities such as Christmas Card Making allow your little ones to get creative and design a beautiful card to keep and cherish.

Christmas Eve magic is created by The Hyde Band. An evening of Carol Singing for the whole family, with a hog roast and mulled wine available.

On Christmas Day, leave all the hard work to us. We will be serving Christmas Day Dinner in the Woodside Suite with all the trimmings. A fabulous way to spend Christmas Day, without any of the hassle.  Booking in advance is required and spaces are limited. If you prefer your own family Christmas Dinner, our cosy lodges are the perfect place to cook your dinner and enjoy a traditional family Christmas.

With entertainment on every day over the festive period (excluding Christmas Day), every day can be a celebration at Sandy Balls.

Frosty walks through the beautiful forest are the perfect preamble to a delicious lunch in The Forest Table family restaurant, or the relaxing Woodside Inn.
